Arms of Ullensvang

Official blazon

I raudt ein gull bjelke følgd av tre gull liljer, to over og ei under bjelken.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on November 8, 1979.

The arms are derived from the arms of councilman Sigurd Brynjulvsson and can be seen on his grave from 1302 in the local church. As it is the oldest gravestone in the church it was well known in the village. Hence the choice for the arms of this knight as municipal arms.
